"Moving to Cuba"

MIAMI: With over 40,000 people in attendance, the Cuba Libre celebration at Miami's Orange Bowl was brought to its feet by Jorge Gonzalez. Gonzalez, a famous "Rescue Brother" from the 1980s, declared that it was a tradition for parties in Miami to move to the hottest locale. He invited all in attendence to join him in moving to his place in Cienfuegos on Cuba's norther coast. Gonzalez declared that the brothers had a dozen small aircraft and over a 1,000 ships -- a Freedom Flotilla" -- ready to move from marinas in Florida stretching from Ft. Lauderdale to Key West. Gonzalez left the stadium in seeming triumph, with several thousand people following closely.
